Bold and rich, with a touch of holiday spice. The first thing one notices about a Samuel Adams Winter Lager is the deep ruby color. Then comes the magical aroma which promises something special on the tongue. The cinnamon, ginger, and hint of citrus from the orange peel blend with the roasty sweetness of the malts to deliver a warming, spicy flavor. On the palate Samuel Adams Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with the season.

Spicy just how I like my winter brews. Was very surpised by this beer and Im glad I have 5 more to drink throughout the coming winter, if they last that long.

Bottle at Plan B CPH. DK. had heard good things about thise one, bot was a bit dissapointed, not that it was bad, it was good, but not great. the bottle said Winter Lager 5.6%, but I gues its thise one. If not let me know, thanks! Deep amber color with a small head, medium hoppy fruity aroma and light sweet taste, medium body and light bitter dry finish.

Bottle in the winter pack. This one had a nutty/ spicy aroma, and looked great in a lager glass. A little on the sweet side, very malty, enjoyable.

Bottle. This was in the winter celebration pack. Probably the best beer in the pack. I felt like the ghost of christmas past flew out and grabbed me (I hate Dickens).

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 This beer actually seperates itself from the Sam Adams pack in that it doesnt taste like that standard Sam beer. It pours a dark amber shade with a really superb tan head that lasts. The tastes are a bit complex - dark, fruity, and tingy hops with some good grainy malts too. Theres a bit of caramel and maybe some plumb. The mouthfeel is thick and lightly carbonated. I dont know much about the style, but this is a pretty good beer overall.

brownish/red tint pour. Carmel taste. No winter flavour here. Come on Sam Addy. You in Boston. you KNOW winter! vaaa. hoppy, nothing to stand out. Not much warmth to compliment a cold day. I guess I enjoyed it ok though.

Had a very pour with a quickly fading white head, ended up clear brown. Nose is kind of dull...not a lot going on here, just some malts. Some caramel flavor, sweet malts, maybe a little spice. Caramel aftertaste is long and nice.

Cant say a really care for this one. Smelled ricey to me (did not detect the "winter spices"). The color was nice and it looked clean. The taste was malty with a hint of nutmeg or somesuch spice. Overall very basic and one dimensional but better than their lite beer offering.
